Way too expensive for a crowded, tardy shuttle service. We traveled roundtrip from San Jose to Monteverde with this company: the outbound van was 30 minutes late and the return van was nearly that far behind schedule. This wouldn't have been such a big deal...More

We used Interbus for our transport from Jaco Beach to San Jose. The driver was friendly and funny. He told us seatbelts are mandatory because the driver is crazy. It seems like all the drivers in Costa Rica are crazy so he fit right in....More

We took Interbus from San Jose to our hotel in Monteverde. The driver picked us up on time, and got us to Monteverde in a reasonable amount of time, especially considering we left San Jose during rush hour. He even stopped to let us watch/take...More

Convenient transfer service. Friendly drivers and enjoyable stops along the way. Only downside is that it isn't as flexible time-wise as renting a car, and it would get expensive for a bigger family. Overall, though, it met my needs with no problems.

Went from Monteverde to Tamarindo via Interbus. The driver was on time, really nice and the minibus was well maintained and comfortable. Can totaly recommend, would book it again and prefer it over other shuttle services.

If you are not accustomed to tailgating, speeding around blind corners, passing on double lines, not using signals, or slamming on beaks and gas DO NOT HIRE TRANSPORT.

Hi Interbus has set times, try thier website. You may be best getting a hotel and travelling the next day, unless your hotel in Arenal can pick you up? have a great time.
